State of the art technology and aesthetics in the world of mountain running shoes. The Bushido II is the updated version of the incredibly popular Bushido. A true all terrain shoe, a super light 298g, extra grip, aggressive, the shoe is designed to ensure perfect stability and support on all types of off-road terrain.
Centurion Review: The Bushido II is a great improvement on a classic shoe. Gone are the rigid heel cup and midsole, replaced by lighter weight, more comfortable and responsive materials and an upper that drains better. It retains all the performance of the original, ideal on rocky terrain or mixed ground but is now so much more at home on lighter/ groomed trail and road too. This shoe has to be the grippiest and most protective for any kind of rocky terrain - that is where it's performance shines.

These features assist “push off” during the propulsion phase while running, making these models who use injected midsoles, ideal for use on off-road trails. Furthermore, EVA Injected midsole drastically reduce the “squash” effect of the EVA over time, allowing the product to maintain the same features for its entire duration.The La Sportiva Mountain Running® footwear adopts 3 different kind of midsoles depending on the style and on the needed performances
- Breathable for a cooler foot.
- The unique open cell structure creates a moisture management system.
- Long term cushioning: insole will retain over 95% of its thickness over time and won’t flatten out.
- Anti-microbial agents and washable properties for a more hygienic shoe.
- The innovative system is applied to the sole to absorb negative ground impact, help traction and improve grip downhill: Created and developed by the R&D department at La Sportiva, it offers real advantages during racing by reducing negative ground impact. The unique position of the lugs allows as many of them as possible to come into contact with the ground, for maximum impact absorption.
